Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - Elon Musk’s Boring company is seeking the permits necessary to extend a tunneling network that's currently being built under the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Plans for the so-called "Vegas Loop" will include the LVCC Loop and any future service extensions including those to casinos along the Strip, McCarran International Airport, Allegiant Stadium, downtown Las Vegas, and eventually to Los Angeles.

During Tuesday's Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s Board of Directors meeting Steve Hill, LVCVA president and CEO, shared that Musk’s tunneling company recently submitted its special use permit application to the City of Las Vegas and intends to file a land use (design review) application in Clark County shortly, the first steps in the process to construct the system across Las Vegas. 

“The Vegas Loop will be a game changer for our visitors seeking to quickly access world-class attractions and resorts throughout the destination in a fun and convenient way,” said Hill. 

“We are very excited about the future of Loop transportation in Las Vegas and are grateful for the enthusiasm shown by Clark County, the City of Las Vegas, the LVCVA, the resorts, and attractions,” Vegas Loop’s President Steve Davis says.
